Most everyone is fascinated with the Pyramids of ancient Egypt.
David MacAulty's book discusses and illustrates "one method" by which the pyramids of Egypt may have been built, and follows the construction step by step.
The author knows his topic but writes his book so anyone can enjoy the knowledge and enlightenment a deeper understanding of the past can provide.

My husband wanted a book on Pyramids. He had a doctor who was from Egypt and got interested. This book explained the way they built these pyramids. Very educational.Published 5 months ago by Grama
This is an awesome book let down by a terrible digitization. The beautiful drawings are poorly scanned, leaving them looking like crap. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Human Shield
This book is not a story as I was expecting but it was still pretty interesting to read about how they think the pyramids were made. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Melody Resnick
My eight year old grandchild loved this book. Reading the book became a family affair.
I will buy all the Macaulay books.
Even without the story this book provides drawings to mesmerize and inspire. We keep this book in a basket in our family space to encourage our sons to browse at will. Read morePublished 14 months ago by A. Buck
